Bristol Airport 7 a.m.

At Bristol Airport, check-in staff

mind the business of the machine.

A woman who sounded European

watched me as I weighed my bag,

attached the departure label

and put it on the belt.

It wouldn’t move, so she gave it a push.

But the Irishman at Departures

seized my boarding pass

and scanned it himself.
